My Thoughts of the Day :-)

If you're in the entertainment business then you know how hard it is to get things done. People are always needing help or extra hands to get their projects done. When it comes to offering people free services, then that can be a good thing or sometimes can be a bad thing. Lots of times the free stuff always comes with a price. For instance, we need people for our film but we can't pay so here's what we are forth and so on, you all know the drill for this. What really gets on my nerves is when they offer you free copies of the film to everyone and then they never get it to you. Now you're begging and doing everything you can to get this piece of footage that you were told you were going to get. By the time it's all over with, the film never got edited or either it did get edited and they forgot all about you and you never get your free copy. What do they care, they got you for free and never paid a dime plus now they have a film that they didn't have to send out to everyone. Now you have nothing to show on your reel to let people see your acting.

How about this.....the free no cost to you just come and get pictures done and I'll give you everything plus edited pictures for you to have as well all so I can update my portfolio. So you say, ok, sure...I haven't got a lot of money to spend so this will be great and will help me out plus it will help this photographer out as well. Not always the case but hey, it's free so what do you expect. Sometimes you get lucky and you get your pictures mailed out to you on CD/DVD along with a few edited pictures as well. Then there are sometimes that you get a few pictures edited but you still haven't gotten all of them. You start to wonder, what's wrong with these people? Did they forget about me? am I going to get any of my pictures mailed out to me so I can have them?

In the long run overall, Free is not always free. Doesn't mean you will get what you were told you were going to get, it just means free for them, not so much for you the actor or model etc. My gripe on all this is, when you offer people the chance to be in your film or offer them a free photo shoot, you need to actually follow through with what you said you were actually going to do. No need to get ill with the actors or models when they try to contact you. Remember, you were the one that was offering the free stuff in return for their time. Don't get other people to do your dirty work and tell them that he/she will get back to you when they have free time to work on your stuff. That they have a paid gig that they are trying to get done and will get back to you when they get a free moment. Look you offered this for free to the actor/model and you gave them an estimate of when to expect the film copy or the photo's. Why not follow through with what you tell people.

It's not fair to the models or the actors to take time to spend and work for free on your project if you're just going to ignore them or never get back in touch with them. Oh, and if you got that much paid stuff going on, then why did you offer the free photo shoot or the free film copy to the actors in the first place? Doesn't make sense to me and I've been in this bizz for over 7 years. I can only imagine how the newbies feel when they just get started in this bizz and get this kind of treatment. No wonder people don't trust anything anyone says in the entertainment bizz. Too many of the negative people in it that are out weighing the positive people who are really wanting to try and make this work. That's just my opinion I could be wrong...... :-)

It's Friday RANT & RAVE DAY!!!!!!

I wanted to Rant & Rave about a good friend and fellow actor that I've known for a while now....Adam Dunnells.

I met Adam a fews years back in Florida when we were on the set of Death Plots: My Stalker Death. We briefly met that day but he was a really a nice person and did a great job on set. Then later on I saw Adam again on the set of The Woods Have Eye's. I really got to know him more on that set since we all pretty much became a family after 2 months of being on set with each other almost every is truly a great over all person and has an awesome attitude on set. A few years later Adam made the choice to move out to California and he's been doing fantasic ever since. He's been in numerous TV shows so far while being out there. Here is just a few of the TV shows that you can catch Adam in....No Ordinary Family(ABC), The Mentalist (CBS), CSI:Miami (CBS), Numb3rs (CBS), and even on the famous soap opera Days of Our Lives (NBC).

Yes Adam has come a long ways and he is for sure doing his thing out in California. He's definitely one to keep your eye on. Way to go Adam and I wish you all the best in everything you do. We will see you on the Big Screen!!!!

I wanted to show you all how creative he really is with photo's and what an awesome job he has done once again. Thank you Yasser for your awesome creation and for being the first to show me on the red carpet.

My Thoughts of the Day :-)

It's funny when being in the entertainment business how much work is put into just getting your name out there. The hardest thing of all is sticking with it and trying to not give up on your passion no matter what it may be...singer, actress, artist, band etc. A good bit of people try to get into the entertainment business because they think it will be easy and a quick way to do something an get paid with out really having to work. Funny, though, it's more work than you really think. You have to really have a love for it in order to really be true to it and yourself and be willing to stick it out. It's the hardest thing to really try an do as for as business's go.

Promoting yourself constantly and doing everything you can to keep on top of things. Plus there's the money you have to spend in order to promote yourself not knowing when or if you'll get paid on a project to put the money back you spent. Then there's the wait and wondering when and if anyone will ever notice you. Sometimes people get lucky and make it in the entertainment business but more fail at it an the big reason is too long of a wait to get known or not getting to know the right people and no one giving that person a chance. If you're willing to stick it out, spend money to get to the right people and places, then you could probably say, that you would have at least a 50/50 shot. Other than that the best way is knowing someone that is already famous or well known then they allow you to ride along on their journey and from there your dream of getting known is priceless.

Now you can take another route and do what a lot of people of today's society are doing at that is, get on a reality TV show....LOL....yes it's true, people are getting well known almost on a daily, weekly basis from just being on reality shows. So if that's the avenue you can take if you're willing to go through the grueling survivor shows, or the game shows of physical fitness or maybe you'd rather go another route and be another Jersey Shore kind of show or maybe get on a dating show. Yea people are doing anything and everything to try and get in to be famous now days. Funny, even though we make fun of some of these reality people, they are for sure getting known even if it is for better or worse. People don't think, the only way someone does become famous is by other people making them famous by keeping up with there every move and talking about them.

That's just my opinion I could be wrong :-)

It's Friday Rants & Raves Day!!!

Here's the latest to Rant & Rave about....the feature film "Emerging Past". Ever since it's very first premiere showing this film has gotten award after award for 2010 and now in 2011 and this year isn't even half way here yet.  Thomas Churchill is the Producer, Writer & Director of this awesome film. 

In 2010 after creating a buzz at the New York City Independent Film Festival when a second screening had to be booked because of the overwhelming interest (a first in festival history), the film took home the award for Best Horror Feature and Best Song for “Mud.” This impressive accomplishment was followed by a Best Actor win at the Spooky Empire Freakshow Horror Film Festival in Orlando, FL in October 2010. The Best Actor win made three wins in as many screenings, setting an enviable record for any feature film.

Come check out their latest award at FILMDEMIC as the Runner-Up: Audience Award Winner!!!

My thoughts of the Day :-)

So ever wonder what it is about people that they all seem to be so busy but nothing is ever happening? Why is it when you need their help they are never around. Seems that people of today are all about themselves and no one else. They get what they can from you and then they're done. Did people ever stop to think that maybe that person that wanted or needed your help might just have a great idea? When was the last time you knew of someone that made it completely on their own with out the help of one person? Yea, people need people and that's what it takes is a team to make things happen. Just because he or she is the little person on the ground, doesn't mean that you pass them over just because of the bigger person that is helping you. Ever stop and think, that you might just be that smaller person that they are helping because they are the bigger one? Funny when the table get turned...seems as everyone forgets where they came from.

April Fools Day!!!

Yes it's that time of year again where people play jokes on each other and quote those of years gone by. So be careful of the toes you step on today, they may be attached to the ass that you have to kiss tomorrow!!!!
